Jane Black Photo Shoot

February 8, 2017 § 3 Comments


I recently was hired by the partner of Jane, as a present for her birthday. This was a very special photo shoot on many levels. It was such a thoughtful gift, and the photos will last a lifetime and will become more precious in the passing of time.

I asked Jane what kind of photo shoot she would love. The answer was simple and a beautiful one. Jane want a mixture of portrait photos that said this is who she is at that given moment in time, and to include her love for the charm and character of Glasgow too. We discussed some of Jane’s favourite parts of Glasgow and I recommended a couple too, and off we went on Streets of Glasgow photo shoot.

In typical Glasgow style it was raining that day, but we embraced the wet streets.

With the rain now off we then made full use the overcast skies, which provided us with perfect natural light for some beautiful Portrait shots.

 

We then made our way towards the river Clyde, and included a bit more of Glasgow’s rich  Architecture.

A big thank you to Jane Black for being such a natural and making the shoot such fun. And a big thank you to Alastair Clarkson for being so thoughtful!

I have also been selling Prints to clients. And it’s beautiful seeing a richly detailed Print that is bigger and more vibrant than what we see on our phones or tablets.

Been busy

I have not posted recently, as I have been busy the past few weeks. Here is a little peek into the what I have been doing.

Property Photography

 

 

Above are just some of the property shots I have been for DJ Alexander

 

Product Photography

I was through in Edinburgh shooting the furniture made for Edinburgh University Students Accommodation by Godfrey Syrett

I also travelled through to Stirling as well, for their installation of Student office furniture at Stirling university.

 

Also with regards to Product photography. I photographed jewellery for a designer called Nuberu for their up new website, which is about to go live soon. Below is just some of their fine pieces.

 

Event Photography

I have shot many events, but I was very fortunate to photograph a 50th Wedding Anniversary, which are very rare and very special. It was a full day at the stunning grounds of Crossbasket Castle. I photographed the lovely couple and amazing large family formally and candidly. Below is a small section of photographs, as i will be posting a more in depth page to this special day.

 

Portrait Photography

I was happy to finally meet in person and do a portrait shoot with Bryan Espie. This fine man is always on the move somewhere globally, and Bryan this time was just back from the Falkland Islands. We did our shoot in Glasgow.

It was a present surprise to be contacted from Barcelona by Veronica Baron a beautiful model. Where we did a little shoot together, during her visit to Glasgow.

 

Street Photography

Being busy with the commercial side of photography it was also nice to get out on the Streets of Glasgow.

 

I also popped down to Blackpool for some great Street photography too.

 

Television work

I was on the opposite side of the camera, albeit TV cameras, working with the BBC, for an up and coming show next year. It was a fun and photography related and that is all I am allowed to say for the time being.

Scotway House / Henderson Shipyard

May 21, 2016 § 2 Comments


Scotway House By Zeno Watson-4686

Built in 1885 Scotway house in Glasgow, was originally the drawing offices of DW Henderson Shipbuilder’s.

On the 20th May 2016 it was set on fire. This breaks my heart to see yet another listed building in Glasgow being set on fire deliberately.

Scotway House By Zeno Watson-7420Scotway House By Zeno Watson-7406

I was fortunate that back in 2010 the back door was open. and I went inside to document this historical gem of building, as I knew one say it would be consumed in flames in the future, as many a listed building in Glasgow that are left to rot, always do.

A beautiful old can of McEwan’s Export. I never took anything from inside this building, but left it as is, for the next explorer to enjoy.

I actually sat on the roof for a bit, embracing the Glasgow Clydeside skyline.Scotway House By Zeno Watson-4796Scotway House By Zeno Watson-4788

Up in the attic / loft there were superb wee paper cut outs glued to the walls, of a golden age that had past.

The sadness of anything metal, or of value had been stripped. You can see the detail of one of the Iron bannisters at the top of the page.

Scotway House By Zeno Watson-4739Scotway House By Zeno Watson-4723

Despite the French styled building, designed by Bruce and Hay Architects being is awful condition even back in 2010. The light in some parts was gorgeous, and absent in other parts.

Scotway House By Zeno Watson-7417

I hope this building’s shell is rescued, but i fear it was be flattened soon.

Scotway House By Zeno Watson-7410

Edit:

It has been more or less demolished now…

I will miss this old friend…
